Advent Software Hosts First Annual ‘Advent Gives Back Day’

Event Extends Active Community Involvement of Company, Employees

SAN FRANCISCO – September 1, 2009 - Advent Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADVS) a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, today announced that more than 300 Advent employees donated their time to help a variety of local non-profit organizations August 27, for the Company’s first annual ‘Advent Gives Back Day.’  Organized by employees, ‘Advent Gives Back Day’ is an extension of Advent’s commitment to the communities in which its employees live and work, which is core to the Company’s culture. 

Participants provided help with indoor and outdoor maintenance projects for organizations, including: Alameda Point Collaborative, San Francisco Boys and Girls Clubs, Episcopal Community Services, Janet Pomeroy Center, USS Pampanito, YMCA Urban Services, Charles Drew Elementary, Jumpstart, Hooked on Nature and Literacy for Environmental Justice.

“‘Advent Gives Back Day’ is a direct result of employees’ desire to identify additional hands-on ways to make a further difference in our communities,” said Todd Gottula, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Accounts.  “With non-profit resources stretched especially thin these days due to the economic downturn, the need for volunteers has never been greater. Advent employees have generously responded to that need, and we expect that this event will continue to grow.”

Advent’s charitable program is comprised of four sub-committees including: employee volunteerism, employee grant requests, corporate-level contributions and employee matching gift program.

The San Francisco Business Times recently named Advent to its annual list of ‘Top Corporate Philanthropists in the Greater Bay Area.’
